A very modern courthouse, well secured and busy. A nice place to visit for educational purposes. Avoid booking a room, none available (haha), just joking.

This old courthouse is steeped in history, the architecture is second to none. While in the area make sure to take in the rest of the sights. Worth braving the cold for.

An architecturally interesting building in Old Montreal, near a number of attractions including Basilica de Notre-Dame. No tours. Just enjoy the view.

Located in Old Montreal, it's a great landmark with wonderful grounds. We didn't tour the building, but marveled at it every day.

You either love or hate Palais de Justice. The facade is too colourful for my taste...more suited for a vanguard museum? Saving grace is It hosts restaurants, local art galleries, all kinds of clinics, conference facilities, access to public transportation, etc.. Really, depends what you...More

Modernist building a bit on the brutalist side. You'll be passing by as you walk around Old Montreal and it is a bit of an anomaly among the older architectural styles. Easy to pass by with all the other more interesting buildings to see.

it. is a very nice building and the city must be proud about it. Location is wonderful and the location is exciting mostly for tourists in Old Montreal. White collars working in the surroundings have plenty of restaurants at different level prices.

A black concrete and granite structure without any design in the Old Town surrounded by Heritage buildings is truly an eyesore. And they call it a Palace? What a joke!

This is a strange place to review but here goes, it's Montreals main courthouse nobody ever comes out of here happy the building is ugly and foreboding, there are no tours so don't bother. If you spend your whole life never having to go there...More
